12 Days of Simpler Christmas

Happy December!  Ready or not,  Christmas is coming…fast!


I haven’t posted a blog in quite some time, but I do have a couple of good excuses.  My first grandchild, a boy, was born on Oct. 14th.  Everyone tells you how great being a grandparent is but until you experience it, you really can’t imagine how wonderful it really is.  His name is Brady Paul and he is truly a dream baby!  I’m crazy about him and I’m thoroughly enjoying watching my son and his wife parent him with amazing confidence and so much love.  I’m so blessed!


My second excuse is that our home has been undergoing a remodel for the past 7 weeks.  We now have a totally transformed basement (well almost) and a designated teaching/entertaining space which were my two goals for the space.  I love to connect with people and I love teaching classes – now I can easily do both in my new space!

Yesterday my team and I began a new series on FB and Instagram called 12 days of Simpler Christmas.  As we begin this new series our hope is that you will consider what you value most during this busy season and learn new ways to focus your energy into those areas.  Most people go through the holiday season without a clear sense of what makes them happy and fulfilled.  It is truly the time of year when we have to make conscious choices since Christmas offers so many possibilities.  We hope you will follow along.  You will see some photos of my new space and I trust that you will be excited to join me for a class in late January or early February (see organizedatlast.biz/classes)  YEAY!!

We wish you a simpler and more peaceful Christmas this year!  If you need a little help with organizing, decorating or just a couple extra cheerleaders, the OAL team is full of energy , ideas and joy to inspire you to not only dream your dreams but to actually live them out!!
